Ah yes! "Shot." - my dream of late has been to get some nice photographs of robin and blue tits, hopefully in a slight wintery setting, to make into little Christmas presents. However, as you will see, some of my photographs aren't working out yet.
They are what seem to be generally described by birders as "record shots". These are essentially photographs that although they allow the bird to be clearly identified, they aren't of the highest quality.
Or to put it another way, they are photographs that are bloody rubbish, and have no chance of making it into the Countryfile calendar or getting a matily hearty complement from Chris Packham on Springwatch. At the moment I seem to be specialising in such shots, every photo is another "record shot" for the blog.
So here is today's haul of "record shots", more records than Guinness.
